# Shear Stress

Shear stress problem

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My answer to question 5 is wrong, can you correct? PCD = pitch circle diameter

Factor of safety = ultimate tensile stress / safe working stress

#### Solution Preview

I find two essential and one secondary errors in your text:

(1) In your sentence "If PCD meant the diameter to start with this shear stress is 2 kN m / 200 mm ...". The error is that you divided the torque by the DIAMETER.

The correct formula ...

#### Solution Summary

A shear stress problem for pitch circle diameters are determined.
